Crafted comfort for people suffering from dementia and Alzheimer disease.
~ Scottie Dog at Sunset ~
This is a 14" cushion with fiddle items attached. It is soft and comfortable to hold and squeeze and fiddle with. It has cheerful and calming colours that will enhance any chair or bed when not in use!
Included on cushion are a wooden ring, a zip, a twiddle furry string and a raised black Scottie dog applique. The colours in this cushion are generally oranges, like a summer sky at sunset. the four squares are of different textures, one raised minky dot which is pleasant to rub and another of very soft fleece. This cushion has a warm and happy feel to it giving pride of place to the little Scottie who may have brought such joy and friendship into one's life.
As loved ones’ age, it becomes increasingly important that they live in the present, in a way that preserves the essence of who they are. Providing elders with comfort, warmth and activity improves quality of life and helps them to relax and enjoy treasured memories of a life lived to the fullest.
These fidget cushions may not be suitable for all persons affected by dementia. They are designed to be a point of contact with others stimulating memory and conversation and to provide familiar items to fidget with thus occupying restless hands. Each fidget item is attached with at least 3 layers of stitching and will withstand ‘normal’ levels of pulling. These cushions should be placed in a pillowcase for washing on a delicate cycle and pressed under a cloth.
These cushions can be personalized using persons own photos which I scan and print on cotton. ( Custom orders may take one week to complete)
